obama's administration says healthcare.gov is working properly 90% of the time. the website appears to have met the self-imposed deadline of december 1st to be up and running 80% of the time. meanwhile, nbc news confirms 100,000 americans successfully selected insurance plans in november. it's a huge increase from the 27,000 able to do so in october. the question now is whether the fixes will be enough to repair some of the heavy political damage caused by the disastrous launch. steve handelsman is live on capitol hill with the latest on that. the glitches were causing democrats to consider breaking ranks on the affordable care act. is everyone back in line now? >> reporter: i don't think they are. the glitches remain. glitch is the term the obama care people would love everybody to use. it kind of implies that these are small, fixable problems when, in fact, serious systemic problems remain. that 100,000 number, give or take 10% or 15% each way that signed up to the moment on the federal obama care exchange is more than doubled by the state exchanges. there's a relative handful of

. and it was bustling. what people tell you is they're really afraid that president obama, this administration is out to outlaw guns, that the background checks are just a first step. any passage of law is a first step and he's going to take away our weapons, violate the constitution. that continues to be the impetus for the sales, apparently. that is a real spark. >> i basically think that's what it is, the fact that people have a great fear in their mind that they will not be able to buy these guns later on. >> i want to pick up on the word fear. why do people have this fear? people have been primed f r years to believe that government is going to come get our gun, right? and now there's this scary black president who is also leading the government. they're going to come get our guns. two years in virginia, you see the sale of nearly 1 million guns in one state in a two-year period. to me that's all about the priming that people receive certain messages and they're afraid -- they accept these messages even though, to my way of saying it, there's really no evidence to support it. >>> silver line del
